Plastering vs drywall

Two of the most popular ways to finish a wall in your home are to use plaster or drywall. Both techniques have their advantages, and both can give your home or office the look you desire. SLP Interiors LTD offers refurbishment services including plastering, and today, we look at plastering versus drywall.

1. A high-end look

Due to the technique and skill needed to complete partition plastering projects, plastering offers a high-end look for your walls. Compared to drywall, the skills needed to complete an adequate plastering job are high, and by using such highly skilled labour, homeowners will have beautifully crafted interiors. If you plan to re-sell your house, well-crafted plastered walls can increase the value of your home and attract more potential buyers. Although drywall is may be more affordable, it can have the opposite effect on potential buyers.

2. Atmosphere

Plastered walls give off an atmosphere and vibe that drywall just can’t match. Plastered walls inside your home can make each room comfortable and give each its own unique feeling. There is nothing better than having your home feel like home, and by having the walls crafted by an SLP Interiors plasterer, your house can become the home you always dreamed it to be.

3. Last a lifetime

Another one of the great aspects of plastered walls are their longevity. Well-maintained plaster work will not crumble after a few years, and properly preserved walls can last more than a century. Drywall, on the other hand, can decay over time. In addition, odours can be created by the decaying drywall and rot can make the drywall in your home brittle. You may even have to replace the drywall to improve on your ability to sell the house.
